In 2018, Abigail Veres received the Brother Cyprian Award and the Charles G. Morrow Award for Business Excellence, as a result of her integrity and leadership at Notre Dame. Following that, she was offered a University Fellowship from Ohio State for the 2019 school year, and received a Master’s from Fisher College of Business. Veres now works at PricewaterhouseCoopers in their Private Company Services tax division, catering to high net worth individuals. She became a licensed CPA in 2020 and is now working towards her PFS credential. Eventually, Veres hopes to start her own practice, empowering young adults and people with less means to plan for their financial future, and, maybe, have an educational farm/CSA on the side. In her spare time, Veres reads, averaging 100 books annually. She credits her superior research capabilities and ability to read quickly and accurately to her days spent as an International Scholar.
This profile was current as of 2018, when she was part of the on-campus Kellogg community.
I am continuing to research under Emily Block during the 2017-2018 school year. Recently, I have helped her craft a grant for understanding whether Canada’s role as Peacemaker in the past will continue into the future and also helping research for an upcoming literature review for the Business on the Frontlines seminar taught at the University of Notre Dame. Past work has included exploring climate adaptation projects in Africa, social movement theory, corporate social responsibility and firm adaptation pending the buzz around genetically modified organisms in consumer products.
My past research has focused on Canada, Europe and Africa in various forms, but all has connections to economics, business, the environment and management strategy. I sat on the University Sustainability Strategy Committee in 2015 and now sit on the Sustainability Strategy Working Groups for Notre Dame. I am Vice President of GreeND, a member of Beta Alpha Psi and Beta Gamma Sigma, and am deeply involved with sustainability efforts on campus.
